GOT Polish Challenge – Indie

Hello! 🙂

Belle Glamour Discoball

Belle Glamour Discoball

For the GOT polish challenge this week I have chosen to use Discoball from Belle Glamour, It’s a polish I have used a few times but for some reason I haven’t shown it to you all on here,  which is very odd because it’s absolutely stunning!

DiscoBall is a densely packed with micro holographic glitter in a clear base, it took two coats to be opaque!

look at the sparkles!

Here it is out of focus so you can see how amazingly sparkly it is!

The stamping plate I used is from Pet’la Plate. These are really lovely plates from Hungary which have deeper etching than a standard stamping plate!

I really like the geometric pattern of this stamp (even tho I messed up my little finger nail a bit) 😀


Leadlight Nails!

Hello! 🙂

Today I have my first attempt at the leadlight technique to show you!

Leadlight Nail art

First attempt at leadlight technique

I started out by making my own Leadlight polishes! I brought a set of 24 mini (5ml) topcoats from Ebay, I had a few umm “issues” with the seller so it took almost a month for me to get them after ordering… Gah!

When they eventually got to me, I mixed a few drops of different coloured polish into each little bottle. I think I need to add a bit more colour to them as I found they are too sheer at the moment. Oh and I really have to invest in some mixing balls, so much shaking to get them mixed it felt like my hand might drop off :/

My Leadlight polishes

Starting from the top, the colours I have mixed so far are, magenta, pink, light blue, yellow, red, dark blue, green, black, dark purple and lavender.

Pink blue and purple lead light nails

pink blue and purple

I used Ivory skull from Sally Hansen as the base colour, then used Konad SP Black for the stamping. The plate I used was one of my new Born Pretty plates, it’s plate QA88 and you can find it right here

After the stamping polish dried I added a coat of Seche Vite, and started colouring in my nails I used the red, dark purple and dark blue polishes… I have to say the leadlight technique is a bit like paint by numbers nail art lol

When it was dry I added some Glitter top coat from Rimmel over the purple, then another thick coat of Seche Vite.

Even though my little polishes need a bit more work, I think for a first attempt this didn’t turn out too bad! 🙂


Matte Damask Nails!

Hello 🙂

Matte Damask Nail art

Matte Damask Nails

I received my order of a few stamping plates from Born Pretty a couple of days ago and I couldn’t wait to try them out!

My package arrived a lot faster than I was expecting, I ordered four stamping plates, some french tip guides and some random water decals.

The plate I used today is QA90 and you can find it here.

Pelican Gray, Diamond Lurex, matte top coat

I used Pelican Grey from China Glaze as the base colour, then added a coat of Diamond Lurex form L’oreal.

For the stamp I used Konad SP Black and my marshmallow stamper.  I followed that with a coat of Seche Vite, and then a coat of E.L.F matte finisher.

I think I have lost any ability I had (if I had any at all lol) to get the images lined up and even across all my nails… I guess I just need more practice! 😀

I do love sparkly matte nails! 😀


GOT Polish Challenge – Over a Black Base

Hi! 😀

Today’s prompt for the Got Polish Challenge is “Over a black base”

Chanel black satin with sally hansen nail prisms

Chanel Black Satin with Sally Hansen Nail Prisms

So how could I not dig out some of my favorite polishes of all time!

Nail Polish

Black satin from Chanel is with out a doubt one of the best black nail polishes ever! the formula is still glorious (I have had this bottle for around 3 years now)

The other polish, poor thing, it’s looking rather well loved, is Turquoise Opal from the Nail Prisms range by Sally Hansen. These where first released back in 2002! I have owned this bottle for at least 7 years!

Lovely, lovely striping tape

Lovely, lovely striping tape

I used one thin coat of Black Satin, then a coat of Seche Vite, when it was dry I applied two strips of striping tape, and carefully added a thin coat of Turquoise Opal.

Then I removed the tape with tweezers and added another coat of Seche Vite.

This mani is more topcoat than nail polish! 😀


GOT Polish Challenge – Over a White Base!

Hello! 🙂

GOT Polish Challenge Over a White Base

GOT Polish Challenge Over a White Base

It seems like ages since I last posted nail art for the GOT Polish Challenge! But that’s probably because it has been ages :/

got-polish-part-2

For today’s prompt I chose a very simple stamped design, I used White on White from China Glaze… I think my bottle is now more polish thinner than actual polish… It’s probably time to retire it and get a new one!

I used Propaganda from Illamasqua to stamp the image, and the stamping plate is 07 from Moyou’s Suki collection.

Propaganda is getting to be a vhtf polish 😦 I have only found a couple of other dark blue jelly polishes with a similar colour intensity these are Blue-Topia from Color Club and L’orial Midnight Mistress.

I think this looks like Willow pattern from ceramic plates lol!

Red and Black and Pointy!

Hi 🙂

Just a quick post today! Some simple red and black nails created with the help of some striping tape!

Come to Bed Red from Butter London and  Barry M Black

Come to Bed Red from Butter London and Barry M Black

I started off with Come To Bed Red from Butter London, this is one from my untried pile! It’s a really lovely shade and was really easy to apply, but it unfortunately took four coats to be opaque so definitely not a polish to go for if you are in a hurry!

Then (when it was dry) I used striping tape to mark out the triangle shapes and filled them in with Barry M Black, I removed the tape while the polish was still wet so it didn’t remove the polish along with it.

For some reason I added some striping tape to my ring finger… It seemed like a good idea at the time, now I really don’t like it :/ Unfortunately I realized after I had added the top coat!

my nails look so much longer!

This design really makes my nails look longer so I think I’ll try to ignore the offending bits of striping tape! 🙂
